Ice surfaces close for the season in Red Deer

March 16, 2017 9:47 AM
(Red Deer, Alberta)

As the weather trends warmer and we enter spring, all outdoor ice surfaces are closed effective immediately. 

Bower Ponds, Anders on the Lake, and West Lake skating areas are now closed due to poor ice conditions. Crews are in the process of putting up signs around these natural bodies of water to notify public of the unsafe ice conditions. The public are asked to stay safe by obeying all signs and barricades and to keep off the ice. Boarded and unboarded rinks are also closed. 

The Bower Ponds Pavilion will remain open for games night and private event bookings. For more information call 403-318-6298 or visit
